Gene's Water & Sewer covers 6 signs that a sewer pipe requires repair

MINNEAPOLIS - eTradeWire -- Gene's Water & Sewer has decades of experience in repairing sewer pipes and wants to discuss six common signs that it is time to call in a professional for repairs.

Sewer pipes play an essential role in any house and impact the day-to-day life of almost everyone. When they are doing their job properly, sewer pipes are easily forgotten – but when one of these signs that it's time for a repair occurs, sewer pipes can make their presence quite known.

If a sewer pipe requires repair, one common sign may be sewage backups or blockages. As a home's drains rely on the sewer line to drain, an issue in the main sewer line could increase issues with regular drainage.

Homes that smell like sewer odor may also have cause for concern. Well-maintained sewers should be airtight everywhere but their vent stacks, meaning that no home should smell sewer odors leaking back up through the pipes.

The sound of gurgling from pipes can also indicate that there is a problem. While occasional gurgling is normal in most houses, consistent gurgling can be caused by a blockage in the sewer system.

If a home is experiencing slow draining, this is normally caused by a blockage. Some blockages or clogs can be handled simply with a plunger or snake, but if that does not work – a professional should be called to check for and fix potentially larger problems.

Unexpected spikes in the water bill are another common indicator of a leak in a sewer system. A leak could cause continuous flow of water, which could cause uncharacteristically high spikes in water bills.

Finally, if a homeowner notices soggy spots in the yard, that could be another sign of a leaking sewer pipe. However, this sign is a bit less indicative of specifically sewer pipe damage, as there are a few possible reasons that this could be occurring. The best way to determine if sewer pipe repair is needed in this case is to contact a professional like the ones at Gene's Water & Sewer to come inspect the systems.
